Hello @Sneha A S

I understand that you would like to allow users to comment on issues only when they are added to one of the groups selected in the group picker custom field of those specific issues. Is it correct?

If that's the case, you can add Group Picker Custom Fields under the Add Comments permission of your project's permission scheme. Here are the steps:

- Navigate to your project > Project Settings > Permissions

- Click on Actions > Edit Permissions

- In the Add Comments permission, click on Edit and grant the permission to the Group custom field value, selecting the group picker you want to validate:

Let me know if this information helps.

Thank you. This solution worked 

You are welcome, @Sneha A S

Have a nice weekend. :)
